Computing and communicating statistics in sensor networks Conference Paper uri icon


  • The network model was used to compute the statistics in sensor networks. The two main network topologies used were the collocated network, in which every transmission is heard by all nodes, and the random planar configuration, in which n nodes are uniformly and independently distributed on a unit square. The results established sharp scaling bounds for communicating the subclasses in the collocated and random planar configuration. The assumptions show that collisions are not allowed to convey any information, and therefore consider only collision free scheduling strategies.
